• Pre-requisites

    Organisations should have their principal place of business located in the UK.

    Organisations must have remote site privilege within their approved exposition Section 2.8 (147.A.45c) – If not the organisation should apply for the remote site privilege by submitting an application form SRG  to their allocated Surveyor their exposition detailing their control procedure for such privilege.

    Organisations with their principal place of business located outside the UK, including those based in the Channel Islands, should apply directly to EASA.

    Organisations needing to change a Registered Company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Number will require a new initial approval as it cannot be classed as a change to an existing approval.

    See CAP 562, Leaflet C-30 for further information.

    How much does it cost?

    See the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges.

    If you apply for an initial approval with multiple ratings under the same approval type, you must include a payment relating to the charge for the highest rating applied for e.g. a Part 147 application for ratings T1, T2 and C would attract a single charge for the highest rating, being the T1, as per the Scheme of Charges.

    In the event of a discrepancy between the information here and the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions), the Scheme of Charges takes precedence.
